Find the post-mortem assocaied with an incident via API

I would like to find the post-mortem associated with an incident via the API, but I cannot find the post-mortem reference in the the Incident itself.

There is an incident in the post-mortem API, but there seems no also seems no way to list post-mortems.

My purpose is to ensure that P1/P2 incidents have a post-mortem and that it follows out format and agreements (for example - a Jira ticket is needed for each Action item). The initial ideas was to list Incidents that are closed/resolved and see whether they have a post-mortem. If so get the post-mortem and review the content for format and ticket links. If not, create post-mortem in our format and notify the incident owner that a post-mortem skeleton had been created.

Hi @Wolfgang Kandek,

This is Darryl. I am here to help. 😀

Understand that you would like to leverage Opsgenie Incident API to list out the Opsgenie Incidents which don't have a Postmortem yet.

The endpoint


We recommend tailoring the `query` inline parameter in the URL when making the API request.

The List Incident API documentation is ->

The Search Syntax for Incidents documentation is a great reference for you to adjust your query ->

Last, please encode the URL with the reference ->

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Daryl, that helps with one of my issues, i.e. an incident that does not have a post-mortem.

But I would also like to access the incidents that have a post-mortem and verify the format used:

- Sections that we have as mandatory
- Jira tickets for action items
- etc

Hi @Wolfgang Kandek,

You can use the following query parameters for postmortemStatus:

  • no-postmortem
  • published
  • in-review
  • draft

If you want to only include incidents that have a published postmortem, you can use the following endpoint with 'published' as the value for the 'postmortemStatus' query parameter:

From those queries that return incidents how do I find the associated post-mortem?

@Wolfgang Kandek You would need to use the Get Postmortem Request API, using the incident ID returned from the List Incidents endpoint.

John, that requires the postmortemid? Where do I get it from?

John M Atlassian Team Dec 16, 2022

It looks like right now the only way to get the postmortemid is to create a postmortem via the API (in which case it will return the id) or in the UI, go to Analytics >> postmortem reports (id is in the URL)

I have found that there is a feature request to add this functionality to the API:
